What is IPAM?

IP Address Management

IPAM is a means of planning, tracking, and managing the Internet Protocol address space used in a network. IPAM integrates DNS and DHCP so that each is aware of changes in the other (for instance DNS knowing of the IP address taken by a client via DHCP, and updating itself accordingly). BlueCat provides network intelligence and insight into the relationship between devices, users and IP addresses that can be put into action to improve security and ensure reliable, always-on business connectivity and their implementation optimizes the customer’s network address space. Since it does not help resolve queries for outside zones, it is generally very fast and can handle many requests efficiently.
